Bullies were bullied as little kids - that's where they learned it. They had all the same feelings of shame and fear and anger that they want YOU to feel now. Of course they're not conscious of this and are often the first to deny any connection with being bullied themselves.
What you must do is go to the authorities - any authorities - the head of the school - the cops - whoever. And you have to make it stop. This will not only help YOU, but it will also help the bully - because when he was being bullied, there was nobody around to make it stop for him. He might even grow some brains in the process.
Bullies can and should be stopped.
